Deccan Cements My Opinion
Deccan Cements is a Cement Company. Cement is good sector. If you look at most cement sector stocks they have given positive returns to investors. The cement sector story is still intact as India will have construction going on for decades be it residential or commercial.
Majority of construction still is in metro cities and around it. There are vast area of land be it tier 2 or tier 3 cities where construction is still pending. Also infrastructure growth will be required across country to support the Economic growth be it road or other similar structure.
I am bullish on this sector. I have stock from this sector in my portfolio. You should evaluate stocks from the sector before making a decision. There are good number of Companies operating in this space. They are divided into Cement major and Cement minor. That is sector has big companies as well as small ones in the sector.
In case you are interested then you can track the company by adding it to your stock watch list. That way you can keep close eye on the Company.
